Taylor, we are selling the Jetta because it was my dads car and he passed away 2 weeks ago. The car is mint, we have had no problems with it at all.

I would definitely consider one for your girl

I'm sorry to hear your father past away recently.
I'm glad to hear you have good comments about a jetta for the women.

Cool...lots of Jim'* on BC actually..hahahah

And yah, its a REALLY nice car, if I could afford the $327 dollar payments, I would keep it for myself. Hmm, not bad, 24, owns Jetta VR6 as Sunday fun toy and drives Aurora no..we gotta sell it. I expect it will go quickly. I have yet to see a Jetta like it, very unique, thats why my dad bought it..(lol he was a Jim too...its all in the name bro)

I'd say it was unique.... There aren't too many like that... And that one looks showroom.. I'd have that VW for sure... And that little 2.8 will hual arse too...
Agreed. I've seen that puppy in person and it is a looker. Plus the Momo rims and Pirelli tires, and blue tinted headlights and sidemarkers...it'* pretty unique.

Teach her stick and get this one!

I like the VR6s alot. Wish I had one. I was thinking of getting an old VR6 or GTI. The VR6 has as much hp as my ride, but without the flab . You got alot of stuff in your garage 89BonnieSE89. It reminds me of mine.

Well, came home tonight to find one less car in the driveway. Seems like the bank came and took back the car. Since it was my late fathers name on the loan, we are not responsible. My mom surrendered the keys to the bank and a 3rd party came in and towed my favourite Jetta VR6 away. I suppose she is off to auction.

I got used to seeing his car in my driveway, sorta like a reminder...now its gone
